What defines a family car... Is it the extensive safety features, driver aids, necessity for cargo space? Well then I'm afraid to say it, but both could be a strong "family car" or "woman's car" candidate. Sadly, I think the letter "M" in automotive terms has evolved away from a it's nimble performance and pure driving experience roots to join the other silly descriptions (SS, GT, SVT, AMG) that are lumbering beasts. If I ever see BMW bring out a //M with 6 cylinders, N/A high revs around 300 hp, less then 3000 lbs... my jaw will drop and my feelings will surely change!
